So, this was originally supposed to be chocolate muffins, but then instead of using a muffin tin, I decided to put it into a loaf pan, hence the chocolate bread!
This recipe was really simple and quick. I wanted to make something simple because I had these really great strawberries to put on top of the bread. With any recipe, if you want to change it up, do so! I realized just how much I don't follow recipes the other day, and this applies to my own as well. I went to make my Sweet Potato Burgers and I just glanced at my recipe to see what the ingredients were.. Well, I realized afterwards I added like three times the garlic and left out the bread crumbs, but they still came out great!
So, what I'm saying is, with any recipe, make it your own! This bread too plain for you? Add in some walnuts! Or chocolate chips!
This bread isn't too sweet,which I did on purpose. I knew I was going to add strawberries with agave on top, so I decreased the sugar I would normally use. So, that led this bread to be eaten as dessert and breakfast :)
2 c flour
2 T vital wheat gluten (to add body/sponginess to the bread)
2 t baking powder
1 t baking soda
1/4 cup cocoa
1 cup nondairy milk (I used unsweetened almond)
1/2 cup sugar
4 oz apple sauce
1 tsp vanilla
Mix all of your dry ingredients and wet ingredients, then add wet into dry and mix. Put into a loaf pan and bake at 350° for about 30 minutes.
